Success, as it is currently defined, usually depends on winning--beating the competition--which often places incredible pressures on business professionals. With engaging writing and a lack of jargon, this book navigates executives, managers, and supervisors through the ethical decisions they must make every day. Street-Smart Ethics is divided into three sections: a primer on ethics, a collection of Proverbs-based guidelines for staying out of trouble, and a self-test that contains true-false questions and ethical brainteasers.

Dr. McLemore wrote a wonderful book to help people make good ethical choices in murky situations. This book will interest several types of readers. For those readers who need the occasional reality check, the two page summary on prudent conduct will fit the bill. I recommend business professionals read the summary at least once a week. For professionals wanting a practical course to improve their people skills, McLemore¿s 50 Guidelines with the accompanying Questions for Reflection will not disappoint. For graduate MBA students taking an ethics course, the provided case studies will stimulate lively discussions and challenge the most thoughtful reader. What pleased me most was how McLemore took King Solomon¿s 2,500-year-old Jewish leadership manual (the Book of Proverbs) and weaved it into a practical 21st Century business handbook. In whatever way you read this book, you won¿t regret your investment of time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
